Ok, no time for blabbering away with this one… Waaaay too much to list in terms of upgrades and bug fixes. Sit down, buckle up, and hold on… It’s definitely a mouthful.

Bugs fixed in v2.5.5

  1. Added what should be the FINAL jQuery compatibility fix

    This fix requires you to check to see if any of the jQuery dependent options are working for you, and if not, simply check a box that will then load jQuery the way we were previously. I found that the biggest issue with the plugin vs. theme was that themes normally load their own version of jQuery whereas the plugin was loading whatever version was included with the WordPress release you were using.

    Now the plugin doesn’t load ANY jQuery in your site UNLESS you check the box for the jQuery compatibility fix. This way, it will simply work off whichever version of jQuery your theme has loaded. Then for those of you who are living in 1998, and your themes don’t load jQuery, you can tick the box and we’ll load our version to compensate.

  2. Fixed a couple small dashboard bugs (most jQuery related)

  3. Fixed validity problem with previous release

  4. Fixed issue with the Twitter link breaking if your title included quotes
